So pretty much Titanfall wins every every category it was nominated for. If they say its that good, then it probably is.

Mr_Nuts1507d ago

People said FF13 was good, people said the new dmc was good, RE5, GTA4, AC3

Look what happened some were horrible and others were over rated,

TitanFall looks like it's doing nothing new especialy out of all the better looking next gen games.

It's basically the kind of improvement which you were expected to see for the sequel to Modern warfare.

NewMonday1507d ago

many of the "critics" are Xbox affiliated sites. like handing yourself a trophy.

GiggMan1507d ago

Last year the Last of Us pretty much took home all the awards. Look how that turned out...

Mr_Nuts1507d ago (Edited 1507d ago )

@GiggMan

I think that had something to do with NaughtyDogs reputation aswell though. They've never let us down since the first Crash Bandicoot. So that comparison is a bad one at that

GiggMan1507d ago

@Mr_Nuts I'm kinda with you on this one. I'm just saying last year they picked a good one. This year it could be the same, I don't know. Personally I'm going to give Titianfall a try a little later down the line. I'm just not biting the hype yet myself. Killzone did multiplayer mechs and jetpacks and they were also done way before that. So it's nothing new.

Seems like a great game but of course best in show is debatable unfortunately I wasn't there.

SephirothX211507d ago

If Titanfall was a PS4 exclusive, I think you would say saying quite the opposite. I personally am getting PS4 first but Titanfall looks like a lot of fun and I might get it for pc. Let's try to be objective.

mikeslemonade1507d ago

Here's my unbiased ranking;
Infamous
Watch Dogs
FF15
Titan Fall
MGS5

The jet packs and the wall jumping look phenomenal but graphically Titanfall isn't next gen enough so that's why it's #4.

Mr_Nuts1507d ago (Edited 1507d ago )

@SephirothX21

No I wouldn't but it's nice to know that your one those users who think they know everything about someone...making false assumptions

Get real man.

TitanFall looks average at best

You take COD's mechanics, you add a Sci Fi setting with mechs, Jetpacks (Halo), wall running and climbing (BRINK) and BAM...you have TitanFall, nothing in this is original

Out of all the other games at E3, even the indie ones this didn't look that impressive, not as much to win awards anyway when you have watchdogs, The Division, Destiny

*** Let's try to be objective. ***

Stop trying to bring fanboyism into these types of articles to try and start an argument or to make yourself look big. If someone is talking about a multiplatform game (and it is, it will come to the PS4 in the future...it's EA) then why would anyone side with one console when it's coming to both. I don't like the look of it because as I've said it does nothing new

Root1507d ago (Edited 1507d ago )

Sephiroth

Oh yes because anyone who has an opinion of a game is a fanboy. I'd understand if it was a Microsoft exclusive but it isn't.

LOL look at the disagree's, yup disagree with the truth guys I know it's hard but what can you do. I love articles like this when all the die hard MS fanboys come out to play, we don't see you guys very often, wondering why. I mean take the guys below

"seems like they are out of nuts and all you have left are sour grapes."

What kind of insult is that

Then you have comments like mikeslemonade being disagreed to death for nothing. He stated his personal list, whats wrong with that. Is it because on his list TitanFall is 4th not 1st. Your only defending the game because you think it's a MS exclusive if it was multiplatform from the start nobody would be praising this.

Bigpappy1507d ago

It is critics opinion dude. if you were at e3 and think you know better, you shoud contact them and let you fellings be known, or write your own blog.

seems like they are out of nuts and all you have left are sour grapes.

GameCents1507d ago

Noticing a sever lack of UC2 and TLoU in your list there. People said those games were good and they were right. Who's to say they aren't right about TitanFall? Also, I don't recall dmc winning any best of e3 awards.

HammadTheBeast1507d ago

It is the sequel to MW1-2. This is basically what people want to be the "new CoD".

Anyways, if its good, I'll check it out on PC.

JokesOnYou1507d ago (Edited 1507d ago )

Mr Nutz you have a silly excuse for everything, reputation is one thing that only means people expect greatness but of course you still got to deliver, so to say the awards last year had more to do with ND's reputation than the merits of their game make you look very foolish and desperate to discredit the same critics only AFTER they awarded a game you do not favor.

humbleopinion1506d ago (Edited 1506d ago )

@Mr_Nuts
Your comment sounds a bit delusional... you are mentioning games which were never chosen as best games overall in E3 Game Critic Awards. Some of them could have (GTA IV), but didn't even appear in E3 so they didn't even qualify. Most other games you mentioned were never even nominated.

If you want to dismiss Titanfall, it's best to have a look at what games actually won "best of show" in the past years:
2012 - Last of Us
2011 - BioShock Infinite
2009 - Uncharted 2
2008 - Fallout 3

So if you consider all the games above to be horrible and overrated games, chances are that you might not like Titanfall as well. Perhaps some of them were unoriginal and simply copied a few mechanics from other games - but they were all excellent games. If you consider these games as some of the top games this generation had to offer, you should be really expecting Titanfall now.

Needless to say, Titanfall actually managed to set a new record for the number of wins in a single E3: 6 awards total, compared to 4 awards for Bioshock Infinite and Last of Us (+1 for sound). And it managed to do it in a year where both console manufacturers revealed a new console with awesome lineup, and other trendy gadgets such as the Rift had some amazing buzz.
Expectations for a new game IP were never as high.

Pinkdolphin1500d ago (Edited 1500d ago )

Funny you easily make the comparison of cod then mention Destiny as a counter argument and didnt do the same comparison with halo. Bias bias bias bias bias and you know it. Is it because of that ps4 exclusive content that changed your mind? Double standards. I can easily question the origionality of Destiny by comparing it to Halo but you convieniently forget so it matches up with your agenda.

Yep, Titanfall looked to me like one of the best games at E3. Looks to be a lot of fun.

Septic1507d ago

It does look incredible (regardless of the phantom disagrees by the 'bitter bunch').

Whilst I still yearn for the return of good ol blisteringly fast and ruthless no nonsense FPS' like Quake 3, this does remind me in some ways of it.

Jetpacks, wall climbing, fast-paced gameplay, mechs. It looks great if you love your competitive FPS'.

warewolfSS1507d ago

STOP BEING POSITIVE !!!!

You will loose all your bubbles

Root1507d ago

"regardless of the phantom disagrees by the 'bitter bunch')"

Maybe it's because they think it isn't good, ever thought about that. Of course not because to you Septic everyone who hates something you like are bitter ¬¬

NewMonday1507d ago

"Jetpacks, wall climbing, fast-paced gameplay, mechs"

other than wall climbing nothing is original, it looks a nice game for it's category but nothing more, this game and a couple of others get overhyped by a group of people to convince themselves they have something special.

overall there are 2 games that will start to define the next generation, the Division and Destiny.

JokesOnYou1507d ago (Edited 1507d ago )

"other than wall climbing nothing is original"

newmonday so please I'd like to know what do you think is a great ORIGINAL shooter with gameplay elements that have never been done before?

Isn't the point is that a great game justs has gameplay that works well, it takes different things puts them together making something fun, interesting or feels fresh a a whole although its individual parts are not new? When you play a game do you ask yourself "is that flip kick new?" "Is that charge attack a first?" etc or do you say "cool that game was good?"

-yep I wonder if you'll tell me this awesome original shooter with all new innovative indivdual gameplay elements that have never been done before.

MikeMyers1506d ago

@Root,
"Maybe it's because they think it isn't good, ever thought about that. Of course not because to you Septic everyone who hates something you like are bitter."

It's about context. If you ask a Xbox fanboy who hate everything about Sony they are unlikely to give an honest opinion about great games like Gran Turismo. The same will be said of Sony fanboys and games that are not coming to the Playstation. On top of that if a member is on here and is negative most of time, rarely likes anything then his/her comment will have to be taken into context as well.

The fact is Titanfall is getting a lot of attention and most sites have been raving about it. So who are you going to tend to lean towards for a more honest opinion, someone who hates everything, a site filled with Playstation fans or outside media sources?

4Sh0w1506d ago

MikeMyers well said, MrNutz, newmonday, Hammad, and some other well known guys hate everything xbox so why would you believe for second that their comments are anything but trolling.

CrimsonStar1506d ago

Lol all the PS Fan boys are getting disagrees for hating on a game that's not coming to their console....... lol . Jesus Can yall be happy that the Xbox is finally getting some good games?

NewMonday1506d ago

@JokesOnYou

then why call it "original"? why did it "win" best original game?

as for originality in a first person game you have games like Pry, Portal, Mirrors Edge

"Isn't the point is that a great game just has gameplay that works well"

absolutely!
but was their an open hands on demo for people to try it? no, so how do you know it works well?

right now it's just an interesting game for the crowd that likes this kind of thing, It may very well end up a great game, but we don't see or know enough right now.

JokesOnYou1506d ago (Edited 1506d ago )

newmonday I thought you were going to name some original fps's:

"Pry" I don't know what that is, if you meant Prey well its a great game but hardly original, unless you'd like to share specifics.

Portal is listed as a shooter but also in some cases as a puzzle platform game depending on the site, but either way although its different its not original as its based on a game called Narbacular Drop which was an environmental puzzle video game developed by Nuclear Monkey Software released for pc in 2005.
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/w...

As for Mirrors Edge again even the folks who created the game don't think its even a shooter:

"O'Brien stressed that "this is an action adventure. We're not positioning this as a shooter - the focus isn't on the gun, it's on the person." Gameplay in Mirror's Edge focuses on finding the best route through the game's environments while combat takes a secondary role."
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/w...

-So again we can always play the "thats not original" game all day but the point is if the 30+ game critics who were there in person to judge the games feel its a "fresh" enough and compelling enough game to merit the most original game award then its the winner whether you agree or not is irrelevant.

NewMonday1505d ago

@JokesOnYou

Prey: level design
Portal: it's not just about portals you know
ME: all you can do is discoalify it?

your saying saying TF is just a very well made game but also trying to defend it as "original"? and you haven't played it yet, their isn't even a preview out for it.

I'm saying it's to early and to little information to judge it now.

as for "critics" this is a "sponsored list", in popular gaming sites and gamer votes the Witcher3 and the Division are sweeping the awards.

E3 is strictly for consoles but every game that won an award has a PC version.

PS4 can't say that! LMAO!!!

Ashlen1507d ago

I don't know what to say really.

The game has no single player it's just a run around shoot em up. It's hard for me to get behind that style of game much less Best of Show. And the fact they gave it Best in Show over Watchdogs or PS4 in the same category just seems off to me.

Mr_Nuts1507d ago

Exactly what I was thinking

How can you have a typical FPS which looks still a little generic with no single player over an open world, well crafted single player game with mutliplayer online features aswell. I mean hacking things with a mobile phone is not something you really see in video games is it.

frostyhat1231507d ago

How do you have six bubbles?

Mr_Nuts1507d ago

because unlike most people on here like you who most likely had one bubble before they gave everyone Five bubbles...I'm not a troll :)
